Question Gop Sen. Ron Johnson Dismisses Of The Reporter On Win Biden: ‘there Is Nothing To Congratulate Him On’

Senator Ron Johnson, a Wisconsin Republican, dismissed a reporter’s question about whether he had congratulated President-elect Joe Biden on his win over President Donald Trump in the presidential election last week.

Although Biden has secured at least 290 electoral votes—surpassing the 270 required to win in the Electoral College—Trump has refused to concede. The president and many of his GOP supporters have made unsubstantiated claims that Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris won the election through widespread voter fraud, without providing evidence.

In a video of a Tuesday interaction, Johnson can be seen quickly walking past reporters as one asks: “Senator, have you congratulated Vice President Biden yet?”

“No,” Johnson replies with a laugh, as he continues walking.

“Why not?” the reporter asks.

“Nothing to congratulate him about,” the Republican senator responds as he opens a door and enters a different room.

Biden told reporters on Tuesday that whether or not Trump acknowledged his victory was “not of much consequence.” The president-elect asserted that his transition team is moving forward swiftly, with or without the Trump administration’s recognition. “We’re already beginning the transition, we’re well underway,” Biden said, noting that “nothing’s going to stop that.”
